REAMS Students Take on the Great Kindness Challenge

Examples of the challenges include making 10 people smile in a day, making a new friend, getting to know your teacher, etc. During the week of January 26-30, students at REAMS will participate in an array of uplifting challenges to further nurture kindness at REAMS.

School Day Hours for 2014-15

High School: 8 am-2:50 pm
Middle School: 7:50 am-2:45 pm
Elementary School: 8:05 am-2:55 pm
Weather/Emergency Procedures
School closings due to severe weather or other emergency reasons will be announced over KARE (11),  WCCO (4), KSTP (5) and KMSP (9). In addition, an email and/or phone announcement will be made to families using the contact information received in our student database, Infinite Campus.

Generally, school will be in session if it is felt that the buses can make their routes in relative safety. Even if school is in session, parents are asked to assess their situation and determine whether or not it is safe for their children to attend school on a particular day. If a parent determines not to send their child to school due to deteriorating weather conditions, the absence will be excused.

For more detailed information on emergency closings, click here.
About NWSISD
The Northwest Suburban Integration School District #6078 (NWSISD) was created in 2001 in response to the State of Minnesota’s Desegregation Rule. Specifically, NWSISD was established based on the identification of the Brooklyn Center and ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools as racially isolated entities as defined by the Desegregation Rule. 

NWSISD originally included seven member districts: Anoka-Hennepin School District, Brooklyn Center Schools, Buffalo-Hanover-Montrose Schools, Elk River Area School District, Fridley Public Schools, ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools, and Rockford Public Schools. Mounds View Public Schools joined the consortium prior to the 2010-2011 school year. .
